Canada Import Rules

Residents of Canada cannot normally import a car from overseas countries unless it is at least 15 years old. The relatively few exceptions to this rule can be found in CCRA publications.

Import rules vary depending on your vehicle's age, its country of origin and the country from which you are importing it. You need a good understanding of the import regulations administered by the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA), Transport Canada and, for shipments from overseas, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). At the provincial level, there are vehicle-licensing, emissions-testing and sales tax requirements to be considered.

The Paper Trail.

Your copy of the vehicle's foreign registration document will establish its age and country of export. You should also have a bill of sale that clearly identifies the vehicle (year, make, model and vehicle identification number). The bill of sale should also contain the names and addresses of the vendor and purchaser and the price paid for the vehicle.

Your file folder will expand as you receive the documents generated by the companies involved in shipping your car to Canada. If you have a low tolerance for red tape, consider using the services of a customs broker. For a fee, the broker will relieve you of your paper burden and will prepare and present the forms required to obtain customs clearance for your car.

Upon arrival at Customs, a qualifying vehicle will be entered into the RIV program. The registration fee is $197 in Quebec and $182 in other provinces. Within 45 days, the vehicle must be altered at your expense to meet Transport Canada requirements (it may need daytime running lights and metric labels for instruments, for example). You won't be able to register and license the car in Canada until it is modified and inspected. The RIV Web site contains a list of eligible vehicles and detailed information about typical modification and inspection requirements.

Vehicles imported from overseas must be thoroughly cleaned before shipment to Canada in order to remove soil and plant material. The CFIA will inspect your vehicle, at your expense, to ensure that this requirement has been met. If your car fails the inspection, you will be responsible for the cost of a thorough cleaning and a second inspection.

Import Fees

Vehicles that are eligible for importation will be subject to import levies including customs duty and GST. Customs duty is generally based on the price paid for the vehicle and the percentage rate of duty varies depending on the vehicle's country of origin.

If your collector car has air conditioning, working or not, you will pay an excise tax of $100. There are additional levies if your vehicle weighs more than 2,007 kilograms (4,425 pounds).

Finally, GST will be charged at the rate of seven per cent of the total of the purchase price plus the customs levies.

Provincial Requirements

When you have satisfied all the import requirements, a critical document called a Vehicle Import Form will be given to you by customs, your broker or the RIV program, depending on the circumstances of your importation. Without this piece of paper, you will get only a blank stare from your provincial licensing authorities.

Before heading off to your licensing bureau, you'll need to satisfy the provincial requirements. In Ontario, for example, your car must pass a safety-standards inspection. You will also need a Drive Clean inspection certificate if the vehicle is more than three model years old and less than 20 years old.

In addition to the fees for registering your newly imported car, provincial authorities may collect sales tax on the price you paid for the vehicle. Don't bother asking why provincial sales tax applies to a sales transaction that occurred outside Canada.

Duties: There are no customs duties on Canadian imports from the United States of motor vehicles or of automotive parts that meet the NAFTA rule of origin (in essence, 62.5 percent of the value of the vehicle must originate within NAFTA). Vehicles and components that do not comply with the rule of origin are subject to a 6.5 percent duty.

Taxes: All transactions are also subject to a “goods and services” tax (GST) of 7 percent, which is collected on the sum of the Customs-valued import and applicable duty. Vehicles with air conditioning and vehicles weighing more than 4,425 pounds are subject to an excise tax of $100 Canadian.

Safety and Emissions Compliance: Most vehicles less than 15 years old (actual date of manufacture, not the “model year”), or buses manufactured on or after January 1, 1971, that exhibit a certification plate attesting compliance with U.S. federal motor vehicle safety and emission standards may be imported, so long as any recall notices issued subsequent to manufacture have been satisfied. These vehicles must be entered into Canada's Registrar of Imported Vehicles (RIV) Program upon crossing the border.

The RIV Program assures that qualifying vehicles are modified, inspected, and certified to meet Canadian safety standards. The RIV Program registration fee is $182 Canadian in all provinces, except Quebec where it is $197 Canadian. All vehicles must be brought into conformity with Canadian safety and emissions regulations within 45 days of entry (See:

What is the RIV?

The Registrar of Imported Vehicles is the organization that certifies the compliance of imported American vehicles to Canadian safety standards (under contract with Transport Canada). All United States vehicles imported into Canada must be inspected by the Registrar of Imported Vehicles (currently done at Canadian Tire stores across the country) and certified as meeting Canadian standards. A dealer specializing in cross-border sales can help consumers with the importing process and RIV procedures. Consumers who wish to contact RIV directly can go to the RIV website at

Exporting from Asia can be tricky as auto exporters and car exporters are dime a dozen. The stereotype of used car salesman is universal and based on some truth. With the advent of Internet the crooks have come out of the woodworks to separate the innocent from their money, Thailand is no exception. Caveat emptor - buyer beware - maxim has been heeded by businessmen since the time of the Ancients but it is most relevant when all it takes is a DSL modem, a nerdy kit with some HTML skills to put together a website, some Images (Pics) taken at your competitor's lots and you are in business. We have seen a parade of newbie auto exporters come in, offer great deals for a year or so perpetrating an elaborate Ponzi scheme and then disappear with millions of dollars of their customers very hard earned money. Will you trust a company that has been in business for 1 year or one that has been in business for 100 years and is well respected not only all over Asia but also beyond Asian boundaries. If someone offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Not all new entrants are crooks but there are some who in their quest for the fast buck wants to cut corners at the expense of the customer. When you work with Soni you have the peace of mind to know that we have been voted Thailand's most trusted dealership and Thailand's most trusted auto exporter five years in a row and it is for this reason that we have over 80% of the auto exporting market share in Thailand.
